Rep. Owens: The Power of Freedom in Education
The goal of the Congressional Series is to facilitate civic engagement and civil dialogue as our delegation members speak on a range of critical issues. Constituent engagement matters now more than ever, and these events offer unique, uninterrupted presentations that inform and educate.
Sutherland’s founder, Gaylord Swim, once said:
Those who, for whatever reason, choose not to run for public office, ought to be grateful to those who will, even if we do not always fully agree with them. After all, governing in a free society ought not to be about winning or ruling, rather it is about leading, serving, uniting and about achieving the best solutions under a framework of law. This process requires strong advocates, certainly, but it also takes a counter-balancing sense of humility, civility and dialogue.
